Part 3

of Mystery X is done, well, maybe some stitches on the corners. But I'll do those with part 4. I think now that Chatelaine is better done after the next part come out. As with the way the chart is split into parts, often there can be some stitches with the same floss that would have been better done together rather than starting again. I don't mind confetti or starting and finishing but it would have been good to know that if caould have been avoided. Below is the clickable thumbnail.

Actually I could have finished this earlier but I got addicted with my playstation 3, that I was playing games rather than stitching. Benji, days of blade is so much fun, though I keep dying, LOL I'm going to work on my mirabelia now as the Coven is having an SAL. Then I would also need to finish my RR in time to post out in May.

Part 2

Yes, part 2 is finally done. I know it's a bit late but this is a huge part, with so many of the honeydew colour which is similar to my fabric hence you can't see much of it. Also you can't see the sparklie in here. There are so many of those silver metallic threads in here too. Part 3 will see some flowers added to the waterways, also mostly in metallic. Thanks for looking

Yes, I know. Another wip. Well, I am a startaholic. LOL or in the coven known as the FBC (fun butt club) or serial starters.

In my male stitchers group, we are doing an RR. This is the first time I'm doing this type of project. There are 4 of us in it, Sean from Florida, Larry from Alaska and Hans from Netherland. This is my piece. I chose the red inscription sampler and will get everyone to stitch their first name on my fabric. If you look closely the 2 squares actually has 'I' and 'M' hidden there x4 in various view. I will add 'T' in in the front. I will also put in a border around the title as well. This should be a great fun project.

I am putting this on hold for a short break as I need to catch up on Mystery X which is now in part 4. Hopefully I can catch up on that and finish this RR as well before posting it out in May.
